COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In our golden-yellow crystal-clear wheat beer the fresh citrus flavour harmonises very well with spicy banana notes. The fine sparkling gives it a tangy and animated appearance. Throughout summer and winter, it’s a prickling experience. It goes well with fish, seafood, white meat or it can be enjoyed as an aperitif. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

Tap at Sidedoor. Pretty banana forward, more so than I remember the bottle being. Filtered orange-tan body. Clean, bright, bold, delicious German quality beer. Deeper yeast tone, really nails it compared to most brewpub examples I’ve had. A classic, fun to revisit.

Bottle. BBE Feb 2018; Drank Oct 2017 - Clear pale yellow in colour. Massive foamy white head. Malty; wheaty malts. Fruity; banana. Spicy; cloves, cinnamon. Yeasty. Sweet wheaty malty banana spicy yeasty throughout. Dry finish. Best Kristallweizen I have had, but nowhere near as good as their hefeweiss. Refreshing. Easy drinking. (2017-10)

16.9floz bottle, no clear freshness date, $3.50 paid. Smell is a bit skunky, but otherwise like leaves and twigs. Very pale yellow in color with some streaming bubbles rush to support a good size head. The palate is light bodied, well carbonated, minerally with light touches of bubblegum, nutmeg, and banana peel. Pretty good, I like that it is cleaner and not as strong in flavor as a hefeweizen. I'd explore this style more if brewers would brew such instead of unleashing a zombie army of goses.

Nice beer. I sometimes dont see the point in Kristallweizen's but this is such a good beer and is markedly different from Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier that its intriguing. Nice banana and light spice notes, bright citrus, light grainy and bready malts, a pinch of bitterness on the finish. Classic german profile without the normal hefe body and profile. Nice beer overall
